Awesomely, it sounds kind of supernatural and New Age-y and cool to hear Aly explain it: “[We wanted] to find kind of that third element to who we are when we’re onstage, that other voice that is created when the two of us sing together in unison or in harmony,” she said. “78violet is that feminine alter ego when we’re onstage.” Whoa.
And they’ve grown up quite a bit since their last album as Aly & AJ dropped in 2007: “I don’t really think it was conscious for us to break away from a younger audience or label or crowd,” AJ explained. “I think it was really natural for us.”
Their debut single as 78Violet, “Hothouse,” drops July 8, which incidentally is also when my life ends.
